Former Cardinals infielder Tyler Greene has been designated for assignment by the Chicago White Sox.
Greene, who was hitting .222 this season in 54 at-bats, was let go to make room for Gordon Beckham who is ready to come off the disabled list. Beckham had been out since April 9 when he broke a bone in his hand while taking a swing.
After being cut loose by the Astros in spring training, Greene signed as a free agent with the White Sox as infield depth. It's always a bad sign for your career when you're cut by that awesomely awful team in Houston.
Greene, 29, hit .246 in 2012 for the Astros in 126 at-bats after being shipped off by the Cardinals. He hit seven home runs but somehow managed only 11 RBIs. He also swiped nine bases in 11 attempts.
From 2009-12 with St. Louis Greene hit .218 with nine homers and 47 RBIs.
